Exactly. Hell, even most of the store's who send e-mail notifications are almost a step behind. Just an hour ago, I received an e-mail from Rainier Arms notifying me that they had Noveske stripped lowers back in stock. I visited their website 15 minutes after the e-mail was sent and they were already out of stock again.
And by coincidence, I happened to be looking around Rainier's website shortly before this happened, so I know it wasn't a case of them sending out the notice after the item had already sold out (as has happened with other companies).
Once things calm down and get back to normal, that kind of thread might be useful. But with conditions how they are now, it would probably be a waste of time.
